Despite Samsung claiming otherwise on their website these home cinema systems as great as they are (5/5 in the what video review a month or so back which has only been given to one other system a yamaha system) they do not have progressive scan. The reasons I believe this are; 1. They do not give out a ntsc signal at all. If you insert a ntsc dvd and its region accepted it will convert it to pal 50hz. 2. There is no option in the menu's for selecting progressive scan. 3. There are no component output sockets. 4. Its highly unlikely to have pal progressive scan at this price point. They are lovely players but they simply don't have progressive scan and therefore are being mis-sold.
